He lived for many years in Latin America, where he was a Peace Corps Volunteer and an anthropology instructor at the University of Cuenca. Keim is on the Alaska State Board of Trustees of the National Audubon Society and regularly contributes articles to local and regional publications. He is a nature poet and wood-carver. He learned his love of birds and walking from his father when he was very young, and he hopes his own children and grandchildren will learn the same from him.
